I am a graduate with four years’ recruitment experience at all levels fromgraduate to CEO at an executive search firm. I am putting together andimplementing European recruitment strategies, but I ultimately want to be an HRmanager. How can I get generalist experience to do this? Is there any way ofdoing this without a drop in salary, and what sort of career plans should I bemaking? Margaret Malpas, joint managing director, Malpas Flexible Learning Look for a job in personnel in a company which involves recruitment –especially with a European flavour – and other resourcing tasks. You might thenget the job for your recruitment experience, but at the same time be broadeningyour experience. Another thing to think about is whether you have got HR qualifications. Ifnot, this is something you should definitely consider. The salary might be lower because you are unlikely to get the same sort ofon-target earnings bonuses. However, your salary will be more predictable, andif you look at jobs in the City you might maintain your package. Jo Selby, associate director, EJ Human Resources With no generalist experience it is, in the current market, highly unlikelythat you would be able to secure a generalist officer-level position straightaway. You may wish to consider moving into a more junior role which will enableyou to learn the basics and progress from there. This would, however, almostcertainly involve a significant pay drop. The alternative and more usual route for someone with your background wouldbe to use your experience to secure an in-house recruitment position with anorganisation that would allow you to develop laterally in the longer term andhence open up generalist opportunities to you. It is hard to comment on salary, but in my experience you may be able tomaintain your basic pay, but you will lose the commission you are currentlyearning. However, I would urge you to look at this as part of a long-termstrategy to achieving your ultimate goal. Peter Wilford, consultant, Chiumento You are well placed to begin a dialogue with HR managers in the companieswith which you deal. If they see you as reliable, efficient andcustomer-focused they will keep you in mind when openings emerge. Let them knowyour attributes and aspirations. Be prepared to drop your salary in order to make that first vital move. Whenfaced with a choice between a highly paid job and a lower paid position aboutwhich you feel passionate, go for the latter as your interest and enthusiasmwill eventually bring financial reward as well as job satisfaction. There are ways of broadening your experience while capitalising on yourskills. Take on a resourcing specialist role in a corporate environment. Join a consultancy that undertakes general HR posts as well as recruitment.This would give you the chance to examine other parts of the HR”spectrum”. Also think about gaining an HR qualification.
